    I’m filling out my options form today and I’m quite set on my future job: an architect.

    In our school we have 4 options, I have chosen:
    Geography
    D&T
    Art&Design

    I need a last option, however I don’t really want to do anything else.
    But if I have to, Ive narrowed my options down to Drama and Food Tech.

    I’ve heard these two are very time consuming and I guess it would be a bad idea to do one with DT and Art. I’m good at managing time however and would honestly just deal with the work.

    I enjoy both equally, I prefer the Drama teachers though but I feel like Food Tech is more relevant to real life.

    Anyone who’s done any of these two could give me any advice or personal experiences with them? Thanks 😂😂

    food tech is a lot of work but easy. I dont think you do much cooking anyways.

    drama is more difficult

    I would say do drama as you already have 2 techs., and you like the teachers.

    btw I have not done either - I am picking my options soon myself. take what you want from what I just said

    Ahah yeah I guess if I do Drama I will have a lot of practical subjects, which is what I prefer tbh. What are you choosing?

    We havent got the options blocks yet but the teacher who is making them has asked everyone what they are thinking of doing. I think we are getting them next week, but idk :P

    At my school you can choose between triple or double science, but triple counts as one of your options. You also have to pick one from history, geography, computer science or French (and Spanish but I dont do Spanish)

    But the ones I want to pick are;

    computer science
    triple science
    French
    DT

    And I know what I would want my backup choices to be:

    History
    ICT
